The Changing World of AV/IT Design
AV/IT convergence has created seismic changes in AV design. What used to be a set of standalone components are now interconnected and interdependent pieces of a whole AV/IT ecosystem.

Collaborative Technology Planning - Things to Consider
No matter what type of business or industry you are in, the demand for collaboration space continues to grow.

In order to evaluate these requirements, key questions should be asked for a successful AV/IT implementation.
